Hey there! Happy Tuesday! I almost said Monday. I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was extremely busy which seems to be the case lately. I’ve found that I’ve been pushing myself way too hard on the weekends and then I end up not feeling so good. I need it start taking it more easy because it’s not worth it to push myself anymore when I physically cannot do it.
I feel like I am starting to really pop after this weekend. I definitely look pregnant now and received my first pregnant comment. I was shocked because I thought I looked pregnant all along but apparently not. I’m starting to feel really uncomfortable. I have a lot of pains in my legs and my stomach area from stretching and preparing my body for delivery. It’s very painful but it’s definitely worth it because I know if the baby comes on my due date that I only have 10 weeks left. I’m hoping she comes a little bit earlier because I have a feeling the rest of the summer is going to be extremely hot.
Anyway, what did you do this weekend? On Friday, Melissa and I got the baby shower invitations out. I’m so glad that they are finally out. We have started our menu planning and things are coming along nicely. We are going to order the decorations and start picking up some items on Friday. I’m really looking forward to it. I cannot wait until you see the theme which goes along with her nursery. It’s too cute and I’m becoming obsessed. For dinner we went to my in-laws house to celebrate my mother-in-law’s birthday and my brother-in-law’s birthday.
On Saturday, I spent the afternoon with Melissa and my mom. We went to a few bakeries to get an idea of pricing and what they are capable of doing for the baby shower cake. I think we have decided on a bakery and I know that they will do a great job on the cake. I had an elaborate idea for the cake but it’s going to be too expensive and I think I’d rather spend that money on her first birthday cake when she can see it and enjoy it. So I’ll hold off on the elaborate details until she is actually outside of my belly.
On Sunday, it was Father’s Day and it was quite hard. I’m not going to get into details of anything but Father’s Day was a hard day for me. I was happy to celebrate Mike’s first Father’s Day. I gave him a card and Reese’s Oreo cookies! He is a Oreo fanatic so I’m always looking for the newest variety for him to try. I just kept thinking that on that day next year he will have our daughter to celebrate and that makes me really happy. We went to Mike’s grandparents house for a BBQ. Then we ran our normal grocery errands the rest of the day. By the end of the day, I felt like I could barely walk. I did entirely too much over the weekend.
I found myself in a lot of pain yesterday. It was hard to run around work and do the things that I had to get done while being in so much pain but I pushed through it. I’m trying to elevate my feet and take it easier. I’m also trying to ask for help if I can’t lift something or do something that I’m used to doing. That is the hardest thing for me is asking for help. I like to be able to do things on my own and that is what I am used to.
So there you have the past few days in my life. I apologize for my lack of photographs. I need to start taking pictures on the weekends again. Hopefully this next weekend I will. I hope you have a great Tuesday!
